Snowtopped

High up above the rooftops, with a panoramic view over the Swedish capital, the exhibition Snowtopped took place during Stockholm Design Week 2019. Snowtopped is an installation created by Tarkett in collaboration with our studio, to showcase the possibilities of a material typically used as flooring.

Snowtopped takes its inspiration from the soft, flowing silhouettes of a Nordic winter landscape. A setting where dunes and snowdrifts in different sizes and shapes create an imaginative scene for the visitor to explore, with a sense of being immersed by snow without knowing what is hidden beneath. Traversing colour scales of cool white and light grey, the material’s subtle patterns create shimmering effects—bringing to mind the different layers of snow.

“We wanted to create a space where the versatility and flexibility of the material is accentuated in an unexpected way,” 

Charlotte Ackemar — Product Designer

Snowtopped” was created using Tarkett’s homogeneous and sustainable vinyl floors in the iQ ranges, a material that can be found in public spaces all over the world. Tarkett’s iQ ranges have been manufactured in Sweden since the 1940´s.
